    To add a Hyper-V standalone host with PowerShell, perform the following steps:

    1. Run Add-VBRHvHost.
    2. Specify a name of Hyper-V host, which you want to add to Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. This name can be a full DNS name or IP address of Hyper-V host.
    3. Specify the user name and password for authenticating with Hyper-V host.
    4. Optionally specify the port for the connection to Hyper-V standalone host. If not specified, the default port 443 will be used. Add the description of Hyper-V host if needed.

    Add-VBRHvHost -Name "HyperVExchange" -User "Administrator" -Password "Password" -Description "Hyper-V Exchange host"
